Wisteria brachybotrys 'Iko yama fuji' is a captivating flowering plant that belongs to the pea family, Fabaceae. It is known for its elegant, cascading clusters of fragrant, violet-blue flowers that drape gracefully from its branches. The 'Iko yama fuji' variety is particularly notable for its stunning display and is often cultivated as an ornamental plant in gardens and landscapes.

The term "half standard clear stem" refers to a specific pruning technique applied to this Wisteria variety, shaping it into a unique form. In this context, a clear stem means that the lower portion of the plant has been trained to have an upright growth habit, devoid of any lateral branches or foliage. This clear stem creates a distinct visual effect, accentuating the beauty of the cascading flowers that appear above it.

The term "half standard" indicates that the clear stem has been pruned to a specific height, typically around three to four feet (90-120 cm) above the ground. This pruning method creates a visually appealing feature, allowing the flowering portion of the Wisteria to be showcased more prominently. The clear stem also facilitates ease of maintenance and enhances the plant's overall form and structure.

The 'Iko yama fuji' Wisteria itself is a deciduous vine with pinnate leaves consisting of numerous leaflets. The foliage emerges in spring, creating a lush green backdrop for the spectacular floral display that follows. The flowers, which typically appear in late spring or early summer, are abundant and borne in pendulous racemes that can reach up to a foot (30 cm) or more in length.

The enchanting violet-blue flowers of Wisteria brachybotrys 'Iko yama fuji' are highly fragrant, filling the air with a delightful scent. They attract pollinators like bees and butterflies, adding to the plant's ecological value. Additionally, the flowers give way to velvety, elongated seed pods that develop later in the season, contributing to the overall visual interest of the plant.

The 'Iko yama fuji' Wisteria, with its half standard clear stem, offers a captivating combination of structural elegance and abundant floral beauty. Whether used as a focal point in a garden or as a decorative feature in a landscape, this cultivar adds a touch of sophistication and charm to any setting. With proper care and maintenance, this extraordinary plant can provide years of enjoyment and become a cherished highlight of outdoor spaces.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.
